To celebrate the fact that I’m an aunt (!), I’m dedicating this post to some of my favorite children’s books. Most of these are fun reads, especially if you have someone young enough to share them with:
The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt – a cute story about some crayons that are fed-up with how they are used to create pictures. Promoting imagination and coloring outside of the lines, this adorable story is told through letters to the child that owns the crayons.
The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak – this is a book that is a must to read aloud! Considering that there are no pictures, the whole story is about what kind of silly things the book can make the reader say aloud. It’s definitely a lot of fun!
Press Here by Hervé Tullet – another interactive book, this book instructs the readers to press buttons, tilt the book, shake the pages, and all sorts of actions to go through the story. It’s another book that will promote imagination for all ages.
What Do You Do with an Idea? by Kobi Yamada – a story about the power of ideas, open-mindedness, and the confidence one needs to gain in order to share those ideas with the world. It sounds like some heavy topics, but the story is a wonderful way to introduce to a child that his/her ideas can grow with the child and become amazing.
